Trev’s Email 10-11-10
hey just at mcdonalds, if you ever get this..going to the doctor today to figure out what this stomach thing is..i dont think its
lactose intolerancy, i dont think i could live without milk. we will see what it is.. got your letters, they were awesome!
(I told him that Tyler thinks his chest pain is associated with stress as he has the same kind of thing.) haha welcome to the mission... stress. ya it definitely could be.... we have found our apartment and its wayyyy nice!!! it has a loft thing, like one room below, and we sleep upstairs, and the kitchen and stuff is open and below it... we want to sign the papers today and get going today, but it might be another day or something.... when i eat more its a little more painful, and when i say pain, its like a pressure so dont get all worried! haha but its gotta get fixed, and please promise me that when i get home, we can get my nose fixed, where i hit is flat....and bulges out.... today im going to the doctor at 12:30, my nose did break, it might not have shown it on the xrays but it is misshapen....
ill get back on to let you know what i find out at the drs.... i seem to get dizzy a lot more whenever i stand up, ill ask about that too.... looks like your on....
yeah, the chest stuff isnt what im concerned about, its the stomach thing, if i push on it, it hurts, like under my ribs to my belly button so, im expecting some tests and what not today. thanks for the pictures, i cant believe its fall already! and the lake has turned into the small fall lake. The cabin looks awesome! wow! can you get like a large picture of the new and improved area that they cleaned up? like the south side from the east... SAWEET STORY DAD!!! haha i still have a hard time believing you pulled the trigger of a gun in the direction of a deer haha where was that before my mish??? haha when you get on i want lots and lots of pictures!! hey can you resend the spider bull picture in an attachment? i cant get it off the email to see it....
well, the work. our numbers were really low because we were searching for an apartment all week, normally they take 3 to 4 weeks to find, so we got lucky! but we had a few old old records and called a few and one kid who was taught one time 2 years ago wanted to meet the next day, not too bad huh? well he only met them like one time, i have no idea why they even made a teaching record for him but yeah, he seems like he wants to explore divinity i guess is how you would say it... haha here our English class is what gets us connected to people, the street is hard to use, but we pass out english class fliers and some people will stop instantly, read it again, wonder how this could be free, walk down the street, call us, asking if its really free, then they ask how, then we tell them, and repeat, the questions 4 to 5 times.... haha
(Lynn told Richard about an article in LDS Times about the church in Hungary so we passed it along to Trev.) i read a little bit of the Hungary thing you sent me, Bishop Balatoni is our bishop. I just presented a Project Referral and he is gonna get it going. We need to use the members so much! this place is huge! we shouldnt even need to do finding, the members should do it for us!!!oh ya, i saw a guy with that jacket on!!! WHAT THE HECK???? GRANTSVILLE UTAH??? i guess there are used american and england clothing stores all over but how insane?!?!
i want a mission where we kept the rules and do our best but missions are unfortunately a lot different than what people imagine. I still try to do everything a little better than the rules that we are given.
yes i am happy, a little nervous about the stomach thing but all in all its in the Lords hands. I just finished Genesis, Joseph was betrayed, enslaved, built up, broke down and put in prison for 2 years and then, when his brothers came he said, the lord brought me here to save you. I am to the point that i will go anywhere the Lord needs me. No matter what, it will be for my good and in some way for others as well. "I'll go where you want me to go dear Lord" whatever happens, happens. I could complain, and then i think about Job. Or Joseph, and then the one who took it all, our Savior. He knows, how we feel, and he knows what to do to make us grow, all we can do is give Him our will. Thats all we have, use our will to govern our choices and love and work harder to become the person He wants us to be. It will all work out in the end. Joseph was quite impressive.... when his brothers said, we are sorry, he said, no, the Lord needed me here and though it was hard, and infact, evil doing, i needed to be here to save your lives and the lives of those in Egypt.
Now that is what we would call, the big picture. What a perspective....
the A1 rocks!!! i found out that missionaries use it for what we call sajt nite (shite night) Sajt is cheese,
we just make it like arbys cheese sticks but i forgot it when we went over to the other elders apartment so we will save it for the first sajt nite in our new apartment but
you better believe i have already put it in my pasta haha oh by the way, the cheese didnt bug me, i didnt eat a lot but it didnt bug me, so yeah. and thanks, because as you can see, its muffed up, my nose is. I love the hoodie, told bow thanks, i love it, so simple and i can represent for REAL FOOTBALL!!!!hahaha sooo comfortable too!!! did you ever get teh email i sent from MCdonads???? i sent one this morning too
yeah, it wont stop me haha its just a huge comfort knowing that it will get fixed when i get home... i still get some headaches that i think are from the fall haha but i did just fall into a cement corner of a wall.... :)
we live right by Margit bridge, but we are moving obviously, and we are really close to parliment but they are doing reconstruction on the bridge so really flawless pictures are hard to capture.... but still wayyyy cool, parliment, buda castle, and i think its Saint István Church, not sure but its something cool and important hahaha
I feel a little stale in the language, since we havent proselyted much, but it will move. We gotta go but write some more stuff, becuase will get back on to let you know what happens at the doctor...
I found out i might have gastritis.... basically the inside of my stomach is inflamed and when food pushes on it, it makes everything worse and aggravates it.... so lots of smaller meals, and this stuff to take, not sure what it is? but yeah. Didnt get into the apartment.... hopefully by friday, but we dont have to worry about it now... we can just find people... :) wahoo!!!
bye Love ya.
